No Fail Sugar Cookies - NFSC


  • 6 cups flour
  • 3 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 cups unsalted butter
  • 2 cups sugar (white granulated)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla, almond or lemon extract
  • 1 tsp. salt
  1. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix well. Mix dry ingredients and add a little at a time to butter mixture. Mix until flour is completely incorporated and the dough comes together.
  2. Chill for 1 to 2 hours (or see Hint below)
  3. Roll to desired thickness and cut into desired shapes. Bake on ungreased baking sheet at 350 degrees F (176 C) for 8 to 10 minutes or until just beginning to turn brown around the edges. This recipe can make up to 5-dozen 3" cookies.

HINT: Rolling Out Dough Without the Mess

  • Rather than wait for your cookie dough to chill, take the freshly made dough and place a glob between two sheets of parchment paper.
  • Roll it out to the desired thickness then place the dough and paper on a cookie sheet and pop it into the refrigerator.
  • Continue rolling out your dough between sheets of paper until you have used it all. By the time you are finished, the first batch will be completely chilled and ready to cut.
  • Reroll leftover dough and repeat the process!

Beat powdered sugar and meringue powder together on low and add warm water, 1 tablespoon at a time. Add the extract (vanilla, lemon or almond) and corn syrup. Keep mixing, scrape the bowl if there is powdered sugar that didn't get mixed in. Turn the beater up to medium and beat for 1-2 minutes. You might have to add more water if you are using this frosting to flood . Keep icing covered with plastic wrap at all times.
